Who we are and what we do

Who we are and what we do

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust provides hospital-based services from three main sites - the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch, Kidderminster Hospital and Treatment Centre, and Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester.

We provide a wide range of services to a population of around 550,000 people in Worcestershire as well as caring for patients from surrounding counties and further afield.

The number of patients cared for each year in our hospitals is impressive - over 95,000 planned and emergency operations, more than 130,000 A&E attendances and around 500,000 outpatient appointments, including appointments with consultants or specialist nurses, diagnostic tests such as X-rays and minor surgical procedures.

We employ more than 5,500 people and have an annual turnover of more than £320 million.

4ward is our Trustwide culture change programme which is helping us build a more positive, supportive workplace for the benefit of our patients and colleagues. At its heart are our four 4ward Behaviours.
